If you're reading this, you're invited to an art party. Artopia 2015 is just around the corner. Tickets for the general public won't be released until Friday, but as a reader of this blog you have access to the pre-sale tickets which arrive today. At 10 a.m. today ticket sales on the Web site go live, if you use the promo code: MIXMASTER.
If you're into parties, art, booze, or fun, you'd be wise to buy your ticket early, as the event sells out notoriously quick. And this year, we've dreamed up an awesome event for you. Musical acts include the enigmatic George Quartz and art displays from the MasterMind winners and other local artists. Speaking of MasterMinds, we still need you to help us pick who we will receive a chunk of $6000. We pick up to six local artists to spread the money to, based on nominations from anyone inside or around Dallas. Send us an email with the name of the artist, and a link to their work at email@example.com. Nominations are due Friday, November 21.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
